. this bugs me. obama, the other presidents say they have smartweed, but they arrest people. president obama has continued to have raids in states where medical marijuana is illegal. 200 plus. they're still doing it. john: legal or hours, people are registering their plans. john: state legal, but the fed law does take priority. >> obama's said in 2008 when he ran he would use his administration as a tool for justice against aids or medical marijuana is illegal. he has done the exact opposite and as busted some many dispensaries, especially in northern california if that is the hypocrisy, i don't know what is. john: the canvas guppy mentioned. was that? >> apparently for the first time this was a non medical marijuana growing and consuming competition where people were able to try different types of marijuana and then decide what tasted best, what made them feel blessed. and so the winner was in the mixed flowers category, but none gross got cookies byrivate stock l.a. john: the name of some type of wheat. and what strikes me about this legalization movement, it illustrates, as politicians al
and apparently the obama administration is concerning their views don't support the so-called official account of events. former justice official of the house intelligence committee victoria say it's a vlation of law. she represents one of the state department employees. >> my client is being so compliant with the law. here is the state department was trying to ignore this until you beat up on this. they were obstructing justice. >> adam housley has learned from an unnamed special operator who watched the events that took place in benghazi that the official account may be wrong, perhaps terribly weakening. they say the united states had military assets in position to act and respond to save at least two of the lives that were lost in that attack. we take you a of that up tonight with former c.i.a. operative michael sawyer who led the bin laden unit and thomas mcnerney and congressman robert lotta on the losing war on tracking and the crush the keystone pipeline. someone inside the obama white house is issuing threats and intimidating employees of the state departmental that wishes to share cri
coming out, that's the obama white house. the former secretary of state helped them do it. that's what they say. the focus seems mostly shifted, by the way, to clinton now, not obama. they seem to be after her right now. these revelations yesterday had to do with what hillary knew and what she did or didn't do during and after the attacks. for example, we now know that clinton phoned the embassy in tripoli the night of the attacks and spoke with the dcm, deputy chief of mission at the time, gregory hicks. hicks also said clinton's chief of staff, cheryl mills, tried to intimidate him after he spoke with the u.s. congressman, a republican, about the attacks without a state department lawyer being present. my question today, what kind of a picture does this all add up to? where are we headed with this? lisa myers is the great senior investigative reporter for nbc news. jeremy peters is a political reporter for "the new york times." we have two good people here. let's try to figure out the facts yesterday. what did we learn yesterday that seems to be exposing the secretary of state, bring
to press the obama administration for more information. the two state department whistle-blowers we heard from this week may, in fact, be just the beginning. there is talk about cia whistle-blowers stepping forward. and yesterday, house speaker john boehner called on the white house to turn over more documents and e-mails, including one in which a state department official was said to acknowledge that the benghazi attacks were, in fact, carried out by terrorists. >> the state department would not allow our committees to keep copies of this e-mail when it was reviewed, and i would call on the president to order the state department to release this e-mail so that the american people can see it. >> and while she's already made one appearance before congress, republicans may press to hear more from former secretary of state hillary clinton and her role in all of this. in fact, one person pushing for that is said to be former vice president dick cheney. the state department, meantime, is skeptical about whether we're learning anything new here. >> some of these issues were sort of high up by s
talking about obama care medical pay roll tax. a new specific tax with obama care. it is it a noncompliance. austin, come on, man. >> you just stated two things that were the same thing . that is an increase on the capitol gains rate is the stame thing tried to portray as a second tax. >> it is going to medicare. >> there is no doubt there will be practical hicups like when they passed medicare d that free money that the bush administration giving out. there were logistical hicups and problems with that. over all the congressional budget is not forecasting that this will be a increase in the dev stit by any oh, boy. >> look at margins. >> i have to jump in here. >> austin, do me a fave error. >> calling it a logistical hicup. my god, you don't know what will happen to the middle class. what about the insurance premium fees and none of this is making healthcare better . doctors are turning patients away and it is not in full implementation. people trying to be helped are hurt in the end of the day. families don't really give a dam about families paying extra for med
president obama. he is not a much ignorant as dishonest. the president of the united states told the united states told a roomful of rich campaign donors in san francisco last month that the gun used at sandy hook elementary school was, a fully automatic eapon. a fully automatic weapon. that was not an innocent mistake. that was a deliberate deception. you know so my automatic firearms are not fully automatic. 40% of gun sales are conducted with the back rent check is false. even your beloved "washington post" called you out on that one. even universal background checks would not have prevented new town. the centerpiece of president obama's response to new town would not have prevented new town. it would not make a lick of difference in his hometown, either. you think that murderers and drug dealers and rapists and others in chicago or anywhere else are going to go to walmart for a federal background check women want to buy a gun? of course not. this would criminalize transfers of honest citizens. if you don't get eric holder's permission first, you go to ail. in other words, you are guilty
to succeed. >> axelrod: despite president obama's backing 27 of the 40 states that offer preschool education cut funding last year. bucking that trend is oklahoma, which is expanding its programs for children four years old and younger. maggie laguerre-wilkinson tells us about the public-private partnership that's getting top grades. >> reporter: when barbara powell's granddaughter, morgan, starting pre-k, powell was in awe at how much the three-year-old had taken in. >> they learn their a, b, cs, colors, shaims, sounds, writing. >> go job! >> reporter: for the past 15 years, oklahoma has offered public preschool for all four-year-olds, and 75% of them attend. that's the second highest rate in the nation. this program in tulsa goes further serving kids under four. >> apple. >> good job! >> reporter: it's called cap, community action practical and it targes low-income families. powell, who is working at a wendy's, iseration three of her grandchildren. this is not just a day care center. >> no, this is school. they learn. they learn a lot. >> reporter: that's because in oklahoma, everyone pre-
obama traveled to texas today to tout his jobs plan, but it may prove to be a tough sell in a state that has not exactly bought into his job creation philosophy. here's white house correspondent wendell goler. >> reporter: deep in the heart of the red state of texas, president obama tried to sell a jobs proposal that republicans, including one who wanted his job, have largely rejected. with government seed money, mr. obama wants to partner universities and businesses to form product manufacturing institutes, to advance his three main goals for american workers. >> we've got to make america a magnet for good jobs. second, we've got to help people earn the education and develop the skills they need to do those jobs. and number three, we've got to make sure that people who are working hard are able to achieve a decent living. >> reporter: the institutes proposal was announced in his state of the union address. despite the i sequester spending cuts, the administration squeezed out enough money to build three of them. >> this reflects the president being willing to cut and lower priority
and deliberate attempt on the part of members of the obama administration or the state department to cover up the information surrounding this particular attack? can someone please just tell me, what is the evidence for why we're having this conversation? >> professor peterson, when jason chaffetz was asked that question on fox news, specifically, what is the cover-up? his answer was, "that's why we're having another hearing." >> that's chronological, though. >> that's why we're having a press conference. that's why jay carney is answering questions. >> from a national security perspective, let's go back to one of the things that we know. that is at the time, we did not want our enemies to know we had a cia installation there. thanks to congressman chaffetz, that later was out. >> of course. absolutely. >> there were other things we did not in the immediate aftermath want our enemies to know that we knew. let's just say a decision was made to take out some of these references because of that. at the worst, maybe somebody said, and you know what, politically, maybe that's not something we need
thing than it's going to be. >> the obama administration's case was cowardly, duplicitous and they sacrificed american lives for politics. >> jon: you know what actually outrage justified. the president of the united states to consciously allow americans to die to protect his own political chances is damni damning. your level of anger is in fact justified. as is the question you've been asking now for eight months. >> where is the media outrage on libya and benghazi? >> why is this story not getting more coverage in the mainstream media. >> where is the outrage. jon: yes! that came out of nowhere. where is the outrage? over obama's cover-up. which we know is indeed the case. >> that indeed was the case. jon: that indeed was the case. wait a minute. if that indeed is the case, see, i think i know what's going on here. this definitely happened, not if that indeed was the case. you see what i'm saying? that's why people may not be outraged because i think you're saying you're not sure yet. >> what if the president lied about benghazi and what if, in fact, he knew about this m
and more expansive and unfortunately the red line that the president of the united states has written was written in disappearing ink. >> president obama backed up israel's right to stop weapons. >> the israelis justifybly have to guard against the transfer of advance weaponry to terrorist organizations. so the israelis have to be vigilant and concerned. we will continue to coordinate with israel. >>> i want to bring in ayman mohyeldin. a couple of batteries have been moved up north although we saw that prime minister netanyahu left for china. what is the goal? >> the goal is to prevent the transfer of weapons. that is the stated strategic objective. i think there is a larger message here that is perhaps beepg sent to regional players that israel will a act unilaterally when it comes to security concerns. i think that is the underlying message to let all of the players know. >> if anything about assad so does that put more pressure on the president to do something to act or less? >> there is an argument for both. certainly it puts more pressure. at the end of the day is it complicates

political and going from there. >> you have expressed disappointment in the past because president obama then secretary of state hillary clinton then secretary of defense leon panetta all of them came to you, talked to you. >> yes. >> and then you haven't heard from them. have you heard from anybody in the obama administration? have you gotten any outreach or any answers at all? >> i got one telephone call from a clerk that was a couple days after it happened. he was reading to me from the time line which i already had. and that was it. and since then, all they have told me is that i am not part of the immediate family so they don't want to tell me anything. >> secretary of state hillary clinton testified about the benghazi tragedy shortly before she left office. i want to play a little bit of what she said. >> with all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do eve
was appointed by president obama a little more than two years ago to be united states attorney and it is my incredible honor to represent the president, the obama administration here in the northern district of california. welcome to the stop bullying summit. i'm a federal prosecutor so it may seem odd that here we are talking about bullying and we asked all of you to be here and i want to explain the origin of that and why this happened. you people, everybody in this room, has been involved in this issue and is doing incredible work on this issue and we were so honored to be a part of it and to meet with all of you and to speak with you about it. the origin is that as the united states attorney, the administration wants me, wants all the united states attorneys, to go out into the community. it's actually a very different role for the united states attorney is envisioned by this administration. this administration, the president, attorney general holder, they want the u.s. attorneys to go out into the attorney to talk to the communities in our district to understand what the issues are
and the explanation we were given by president obama and then secretary of state hillary clinton. >> we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with with. >> you had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character who is extremely offensive video directed at muhammed and islam extremists and terrorists, used this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies including the consulate in libya. >> but here's what gregory hicks, the second highest ranking official on the ground at the time told congress yesterday. >> do you report to nip in washington within the first couple of days that flfs there a protest in connection to a youtube video? >> the only report that our mission made through every channel was that there had been an attack on a consulate. >> so at this table, we assumed all the things we found out yesterday to be true, but we were giving people buckets full of the benefit of the doubt. now they don't deserve that any more, eric. what do you think? >> i think there are two time line
a bill it would allow states to collect taxes oint net sales on states like ebay and amazon. they can only collect from stores that have a physical presence in that state. the bill now heads to the house. >> republican senator stealing the show from president obama during a bipartisan game of golf. he had a hole in one on the 11th home. bob corker beat the president and mark nudal. it is the second hole in one. president obama had never witnessed one before and thought it was pretty cool. >> the time now is 12 minutes after the hour. coming up we will condititinue bring you the latest developments of the missing women found in ohio after 10 years. also coming up three beens -- witnesses telling what they knew about the terror attacks in benghazi. what kind of questions can they expect. >> amazing photos in earth taken from outer space. how the photos were taken using a device that you likely own. fi. since aflac is helping with his expenses while he can't work, he can focus on his recovery. he doesn't have to worry so much about his mortgage, groceries, or even gas bills. kick! kick..
cannot do together. madam president, welcome to the united states. >> speaking in foreign language] >> thank you, president obama, for the hospitality. during my meeting with the president today i was able to have a heart to heart talk with him on a wide range of common interests. i found that the two of us have a broad common view about the vision and role that should guide the korea-u.s. alliance as it moves forward and i was delighted to see that. first of all, the president and i shared the view that the korea-u.s. alliance has been faithfully carrying out its role as a bulwark of peace and stability on the korean pin nins sewella and northeast asia and that the alliance should continue to serve as a linchpin for peace and stability on the korean peninsula and asia. in this regard i believe it is significant that the joint declaration on the 60th anniversary of our alliance we adopted spells out the direction that our comprehensive strategic alliance should take. next, the president and i reaffirmed that we will by no means tolerate north korea's threats and provocations which
? >> if a man is not popular in the united states senator that means he is a, doing the right thing, and b, serving his country. barack obama was running for president before he was ever elected to the senate. he started during the convention with kerry in '04 when he was still a state senator. for harry reid to call this guy a bully -- harry reid is one of the biggest bullies to ever serve in congress. i mean with his 30-year ties to organized crime -- >> michael: no. no. no. >> woe. woe. woe, dude. >> michael: jack, you -- you are often at odds with how i feel but you are never this unreasonable. the idea that harry reid is a bully. i wouldn't disagree with that. he is also the majority leader and has been there for quite and while and has earned that status. there is no written rule that ted cruz can't do what he is doing -- >> do you know the tactics reid uses in the senate. he has abused his powers as a majority leader more than any majority leader i can remember. thinking at least back 30, 35 years, i can't think of anyone in either party who has ever so abused
to conspiracy mongering and a relentless effort to discredit president obama and former secretary of state hillary clinton. so they aligned to protect their prince. and thus c avoid the most obvios point, who pushed the damn video, it's the only question that t scares them. you know they're scared when they ask you to move on. nothing to see here folks, as the times notes. the real scandal is that serious follow-up on security in libya is going unaddressed. actually no. the real scandal is who pushed the damn video? since you can't p answer that without heads rolling, better to pretend you care about securityi of a consulate whose initial pillaging left you cold because you're guy was in charge. you're going to tell me, mr. editorial board, that you wouldn't g call for blood if itt were president romney?wa remember your big stink about his tax returns? this is now become a school yard pick up game. the media picks sides, cbs is on one side, msnbc jon stewart the times on the other. and we're the underdogs. the rebels, the hoosiers. it's rocky.s it's bad news bears. it's boos some buddies.
the shock waive from wednesday's benghazi whistle blowing hearings are still reverberating through the obama administration, thanks to the testimony of three brave state department officials. we are finally beginning to learn the truth about what happened the tragic day that four americans were brutally murdered in libya. in addition, it's becoming more and more obvious that following the attack the president and his aids deliberately ignored the facts and instead chose to write their own narrative about that deadly night. after reviewing what was said on tap toll hill yesterday it's clear that then secretary of state hillary clinton played a very key role in what i believe was an administration-wide national security coverup. according to the whistleblowers she is to blame for not only sending ambassador stevens to the unsafe city of benghazi, but also for the poor security conditions at the consulate. watch this. >> mr. nordstrom, who has the authority to place personnel this a facility that does not mean the minimum osbt standards? >> it's my understanding that since we were the sole occu
of us, but remember when president obama is giving the state of the union speech and the guy in the audience yells out -- you lie. you remember this. was made him say "you lie" the reference that president obama made to the fact that health care, this law, was not going to be readily available to anyone in this country illegally. it is not available for those who are here illegally and the congressman jumped up and said that. why do i raise this? of all the things president barack obama said in the speech that he had to disagree with, the thing that really got his eye was the very idea that the president would dare say that this would not happen. they know it is then they will fight. a few years ago, this health care issue already has this color-coded notion connected to it. now going forward, you have senators suggesting that you should not get health care on the other side of the citizenship fight. and to me about health care where we are heading for this particular community. >> that's why i'm happy to see elected from california because he sees things differently. new mem
. president obama has continued to have raids in states where medical marijuana is legal, 200. plus they are still doing it. >> you have legal growers people -- >> the federal laws do take priority. >> obama said when he ran he wasn't going to use his justice for marijuana. he has busted so many in california if that's not hypocrisy i can't image what is. >> the cannabis cup? >> this is a nonmedical marijuana growing and consuming competition where people were able to try certain types of mare waub gnaw and th-- marijua and decide what tasted best and made them feel best. the winner was platinum girl scout cookies by private stock la. >> that's a name of some type of weed. and what strikes me about this legalization movement it illustrates how clueless they are. washington has appointed the pot czar. you de sited how about this come to market. mar vesting quality testing, pricing, don't they understand if you legalize things it happens. u.s. delivers 100 packages per minute. america just does this. >> you will see with this. i think the more marijuana is legalized it is going to be

obama's vision of a world without nuclear weapons should start on the korean peninsula and we stated that we would continue to strengthly urge north korea in close concert with the other members of the six-party talks and the international community to faithfully abide by its international obligations under the september 19 joint statement and the relevant ecurity council resolutions. korea and the u.s. will work jointly to induce north korea to make the right choice through multifaceted efforts including the implementation of the korean peninsula trust building process that i had spelled out. i take this opportunity to once again send a clear message, north korea will not be able to survive if it only clings to developing its nuclear weapons at the expense of its people's happiness. concurrently pursuing nuclear arsenals and economic development can by no means succeed. this is the shared view of the other members of the six-party talks and the international community. however, should north korea choose the path to becoming a responsible member of the community of nations, we are wi
president obama would like these two to sit on the united states tax court. not casting aspersions on the tax court or on these very accomplished nominees, but one measure of the fact these guys aren't the highest profile nominees in the world is in the headline announcing these nominations today, they misspell one of the guy's names. the other guy's name does get spelled right, but he is obscure enough if you google what he is, what pops up on google is this nice picture of a band playing music at a california winery in 2006. if that's what you're competing with for google search results on your own name and you're losing that competition to music festivals at california wineries from seven years ago, you may be a very esteemed potential tax court judge, but you are not a high profile guy and your nomination is not a high profile thing. but even for nominations like this that are relatively insignificant in the greater scale of governing, the president still needs permission to go ahead with hires like this. he can't just pick the appointees he wants. he can only nominate people.
the turks feel, but the jordanians, the saudis, some of the other gulf states, that president obama made the red line, drew that red line, and hasn't followed up as fast as they would like. >> well, my own view for what it is worth is that if you make it -- when you make a decision to use military force, if that's what's in question here, you have to be sure of the facts. we learned this lesson in iraq in 2003. if president obama is going to take a couple of weeks to make sure that we have evidence that syria used chemical weapons, to me, that's the right decision because our credibility rests on the charges that we make. and so we have to be absolutely sure. having said that, when you do draw a line in the sand and dare someone, especially in the middle east, across it, if he or she does, then you have to respond, i think credibility is important here. and i know the administration is trying to think, how do we respond, is it arming the moderate rebels, is it a series of air strikes against assad's military assets in order to degrade them. i think the united states if it does decide the

pose a clear threat to the united states, israel and the nations of the gulf cooperation council in the wider world. meanwhile, as al qaeda has been substantially weakened, affiliated new terrorist groups are seeking new foot holds in the region. president obama has been clear that the national security interest in the middle east include security of israel, supporting our allies, fighting terrorism, preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, pursuing middle east peace and playing a stabilizing role with our regional partners and supporting yemen, africa, egypt and ultimately in syria. the department of defense helps protect through the military presence in these regions and our defense corporation and our work to enhance the military capabilities of our allies. each of these aspects was the focus of my trip to the region which, included as has been noted, visits to israel, jordan, saudi arabia, egypt and the united arab emirates. israel is america's closest friend and ally in the middle east. with a former washington institute fellow and you know minister of defense y'all
and mr. obama want to debate that on the campaign trail, fine. but not to bring the state department as an agency or an institution into the middle of the politics. >> and yesterday speaker boehner call for a release of the information from the state department from the day after the attack. let's take a listen to what he had to say. >> understand the reap this is still underway is because the white house has done everything possible to block access to the information that would outline the truth. the question you have to ask is, why? >> are republicans gaining political momentum here? >> obviously this situation is still evolving. it is still fluid. we had a recent cnn poll that shows 56%, that's the majority, do not think the white house is deliberately engaged in any type of cover-up. what i think is going on is that this is a distraction to the white house. for instance today when the president wants to be out there pushing health care reform and talking about the affordable health care act. this will linger and go on and on. we're not sure of all the implications yet. the fact i
the state department removing references to al-qaeda. what this all means for the obama administration next. >> the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they would just go kill some americans? what difference at this point does this make? >>> welcome back. it is the bottom of the hour. it is time for the top of the news. new calls for an investigation after the irs admits targeting conservative groups during the 2012 election. agents singled outdoesens of organizations for additional reviews because they included the words tea party or patriot in their exemption application. president obama paying tribute to some of america's finest at the national association of police organization top cop awards today. >> we know that when we need you most, you will be ready to dash into danger to protect our lives even if it means putting your lives on the line. that's what these folks are all about. >> and a new video of prince harry in colorado attending the warrior games. more than 200 wounded servicemen and women are

and nothing should be construed as representing the views of anyone in the obama administration. between those two pillars, and tried to navigate a path. i would like to take a moment and explain to you an argument warfare ino conduct this strange way. the united states has been involved in a global armed conflict with al qaeda and its affiliate organizations now for approximately 15 years. it was engaged in that global armed conflict before the u.s. government agreed that it was in it. -- al qaeda knew. but al qaeda was able to forcefully expressed to the u.s. that it was in such a conflict in august of 1998. here we are 15 years later and we are talking about whether that conflict can be conducted with remotely piloted vehicles in many countries around the world. let me offer two different paradigms' for how to think about this problem. in these paradigms' i will try to make this very clear and maybe too clear. you need to do three things. first, you need to define what is the doorway through which i must ensure that allows me to kill these people? what is the doorway? second, having passed
by the state department, the cia, the defense department, and president obama. joining us is general thomas mcinerney, retired u.s. air force general, fox news contributor. great to have you with us. >> thank you for having me. lou: to say the least this is a long anticipated and for at least half the country, a much hope for hearing tomorrow. i would like to think the entire country when we lose men and women who serve this nation, all of us would want answers. that has not been the case. what are your hopes? >> well, i think what we are going to see -- and i also hope we are going to year some of the actual facts by people that were on the ground or involved back in state department and other national military command centers, although there won't be any direct military people. that is very important because it has become -- going to become very obvious that we had dereliction of duty of our senior leaders, and we lost four people that, frankly, we did not have to lose. we did not have to lose anybody. the indications and warning were there the day before. they put out a video that was re
of speculation that north korea would launch another missile test. today, the state on china. a major north korean bank tat is used of providing financial support to northorea nuclear programs. in his news conference, president obama chose to try to clarify his perceived red line on syria. as the president noted, perceptions can be difficult to manage and measure by way of example, the president talking about bashar al-assad, 722 days ago. almost two years ago two months. the administration still struggling with that frederick and its strategy on syria. seetary of state john kerry today, after meeting wh his russian counterpart in moscow, announced that the united states will convene an international peace conference to end the bloodshed in syria. remarkably, no mention of benghazi at today's news conference. surprising employees are scheduled to testify before the house oversight committee morning. testimony that doesn't match the obama administration's narrative on the september 11 terrorist attacks that ended with the murder of an ambassador and three other americans. james rosen has our

to protect president obama's re-election campaign. and he wants the state department to release e-mails. >> we learned that on september 12th, the day after the attacks and four days before susan rice's tv appearances, a senior state department official e-mailed her superiors to relay that the libyan ambassador -- she had told the libyan ambassador that the attack was conducted by islamic terrorists. the state department would not allow our committees to keep copies of this e-mail when it was reviewed. >> an initial report blamed the attack on demonstrators, they were angry over this anti-islamic youtube video. well, the current top diplomat in libya, gregory hicks, testified on tuesday there was no demonstration, that there was an early report even that the attack was coordinated by islamic terrorists. >> jim acosta joins us now. jim, have you got news for us on these e-mails, the benghazi e-mails? >> that's right. we have confirmed through congressional sources, suzanne and michael, that these talking points were changed by various administration officials. if you look at some e
how the attack went down to protect president obama's re-election campaign. and he wants the state department to release e-mails. now, the initial report blamed the attack on demonstrators angry over an incendiary anti-islam youtube video. current top diplomat in libya, gregory hicks, said there was no demonstration. he said there was an early report that the attack was coordinated by islamic terrorists. so information keeps coming out, people start debating it. there's reporting from the weekly standard and abc news that shows the administration did help edit the talking points about the benghazi attack on 12 different occasions. what does that mean? is that a lot? what was the nature of those changes? that's what they're trying to figure out. it wasn't just written by the intelligence community, but there was a lot of input from the state department as well. let's bring in chief political analyst gloria borger joining me down there from washington, d.c. let's begin with this. when something like this comes, the first thing we want to say is, well, this is partisan, this is right
of the united states to throw himself a pity party. president obama said as much on tuesday when he laid out the limits of his leadership. >> i can urge them to. i can put pressure on them. i can rally the american people around those common sense solutions, u ultimately they themselves are going to have to say we're going to do the right thing. >> the right thing. let's pause on that. political opponents will have a different sense of what the right thing. as we say on this show, elections have consequences. when we choose a new president or decide to give the old one a second chance, we are also deciding to move forward with that president's agenda. the agenda of this president, the one chosen by a popular majority has been subverted by the will of a small but determined minority. it's disregarded by a senate majority that fall short of a filibuster proof margin. it was behind the expansion of the firearms background checks. the failure of this common sense proposal, it should have been a no brainer had the president seeing red, but the coauthor of that legislation, pat toomey gave preside
state democrats who who are up for election in 2014. have a noose hanging around heir they can of obama characterization gun control legislation that is he trying to pass and more tax hikes. this is an agenda that is out of touch with what voters in louisiana, north carolina, arkansas wants. gem job and family let's then let chris weigh in on that. the gun legislation didn't go the way the president wanted. what do you think he should really push for next? >> well, i mean, in terms of gun control, real quick, this is a position the president has that roughly 90%, including the majority of republicans hold. so, the republicans aren't on very strong ground on that. in terms of where i think the president goes forward, i think immigration is the one issue where you are seeing at least some consensus but, again, the point i made earlier, rubio, senator rubio is out there talking and pushing immigration reform. he is not what i would consider a moderate or left republican. is he getting torn apart and criticized by the right. so whether you have a republican party that cannot decide even on

or they would not be cooperating. but right now the united states is isolated as the obama administration has launched more than 300 drone strikes in four different countries, killing more than 3000 people, and the rest of the world is finding this very controversial if not unlawful. they have given the obama administration the benefit of the doubt for four years, but as we now go into a second term, i think they are now beginning to become increasingly restive, and the challenge for the obama administration, as it has been for us when we enter the second term of the bush administration, is now trying to convince the rest of the world that what they are doing in terms of counterterrorism policy is in fact lawful. so they are rapidly on the back foot. the obama administration -- i know they are working with this inside the white house to do a better job explaining the legality of the program, who they are targeting, why it is lawful, and why the rest of the world should in fact agree with what they are doing. in a moment i would be happy to get into the more of the legal details, but that is w
